Barbara was an amazing person and a uniquely talented counselor. She had a kind and loving heart that touched those near to her and extended to the far reaches of the world. I will always hold my memories of Barbara close and cherish the fact that I had the honor of knowing her. Barbara, you will be greatly missed.

Hi Tyler. I am devastated to hear about your mom. She loved you and your sister so much. She always talked about you when we were having our sessions. She was so happy to see my new puppy at our last three meetings and she couldn’t wait for you to come home from school for the holiday. I am so so sorry and if you or your sister ever need help with anything please let me know at 845-242-5918. I live right on Annabelle La so nice and close. Bob Breese
